Read short stories and essays, view films, write short reflections, and discuss matters that are relevant to your life as a physician. The texts represent the points of view of physicians, other health-care workers, patients, and caregivers. This course offers a unique opportunity to reflect on your career as a physician and to share insights with colleagues. The format will vary throughout the sessions (e.g., we will have one short play read­ing). Dr Raphael will be joined by a physician to lead the discussion for several of the meetings. GWU also appears to offer a Medical Humanities Scholarly Concentration. For more information, see: This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth.
